Mainstreaming biodiversity: conservation for the 21st century
Biodiversity mainstreaming is designed to change those policies and practices that influence land uses outside of protected areas as well as to change economic and development decision-making by demonstrating the importance of conserving biodiversity for achieving development outcomes. However, it is virtually unheard of in the main conservation science field. This must change so as to bring careful documentation, analysis, monitoring, publishing, and improvement of practices — all things that conservation science should provide as partners to practitioners of biodiversity mainstreaming.
